Elven warrior trained to disrupt and contort magical energies. This is an anti-spellcaster unit.

Since Spell Breakers are immune to magic, you can safely cast Blizzard and Flamestrike on them. If you put them in the front lines, you can easily cast Blizzard or Flamestrike without worrying about hurting your own units.

Eleven warrior trained to disrupt and contort magical energies. Initially has the Spell immunity ability, which renders him immune to magic; Feedback, which causes his attacks to combust mana; and Spell Steal which manipulates buffs to your advantage. Can also learn Control Magic.
